This season is about to get very real. A vicious youngster with Marc Marquez at Repsol Honda, Valentino is back on his Yamaha, and Spies gets a bike that he can ring it’s neck out.
For a while now a lot of us enthusiasts were left with a gaping hole in our Forza garages where our Porsches would reside. When Forza Motorsport 4 was being released it was devoid of Porsches, why? EA Sports and Turn 10 couldn’t agree on some sort of deal to have the Porsche platform come to the XBox 360 once again. Now eight months after release we finally have a Porsche Car Pack being dropped on May 22nd, the car list is being highly regarded as top secret with Turn 10 dropping two cars a day at various times to build up the hype of the car pack. The current dropped cars are the Porsche 993 GT2, Cayenne Turbo, two 997 Cup Cars, a 996 Cup Car, a 959, a 996 GT3, and a 914/6. Already I’m a bit disappointed by this Car Pack.
Why? We’re getting thirty new and classic Porsches in this car pack. Well, one, the 914 isn’t new nor is it a classic. It’s the Mustang II of the Porsche community, no one wants to admit to that atrocity of a car.
That was easy for my first comment.
Next is the Cup Cars. There is a simple way to deal with the Cup Car situation. Bring in two basic Cup Cars. A body in white of the 996 and the 997.2, after that you bring in some memorable Cup Cars. I would personally wouldn’t mind seeing the 996 Flying Lizard RSR, the 997.2 Flying Lizard RSR, and the 997.2 Falken RSR. With the other Cup Cars, Turn 10 could also include the GT3R and the GT3RSR Hybrid.
When it comes to classic Porsches, there are plenty to choose from honestly, but for now, we’ll stick to Porsche’s racing heritage. The 550 RS, 917, 911 RSR, and 935 should have been required to be in this car pack. That’s classic Porsche heritage right there. Now as far as classic road models are concerned, there is only one, the first 911.
Now what is left? The modern Porsches, this is probably the section most of the public is going to hate when Turn 10 drops this pack. Again though, in my opinion, the cars I will be listing will be the easiest to please everyone with. With that being said, let’s begin the list of modern Porsches. The 996 GT2, Cayman R, Cayman S, 997.2 Turbo S, 997 GT2, 997.2 GT2RS, 997.1 GT3RS, 997.2 GT3RS, 997.2 GT3RS 4.0, Cayenne Turbo, and the Panamera Turbo. Then you come to the supercar territory, what should be there? The CGT, 959, 911 GT1, and the new 918. I don’t think there is much left to this Porsche Car Pack in my opinion. Maybe in some of the older Porsches they could include the 964 for the RWB fans.
So the list of cars would look like this.
And there you go, I still meet the 30 car quota with no bullshit.
